The IDF says it is further expanding ground operations in Khan Younis, fighting Hamas deep within the southern Gaza city.

Over the past day, the 98th Division maneuvered further into Khan Younis, carrying out strikes and killing some 40 Hamas operatives in the process, the IDF says.

The IDF says the division’s forces also located “a wide range” of weapons and “significant” tunnel shafts.

Meanwhile in central Gaza’s Maghazi, the IDF says the Golani Brigade and 636th Combat Intelligence Collection unit directed an airstrike on a Hamas cell that was spotted in the area.

The IDF says the Navy also carried out strikes over the past day, targeting Hamas positions, warehouses, and vessels along the coast.
